Boot Cdrom always repartition my disk
Posted on 2003-03-13
I got a UltraSparc Enterprise II that come with a 4.3G Disk, based on my heavly usage, the disk runs out of size. So I got brand new 9.1G disk to replace 4.3G.
I try partition it under currently running system and make file system on my brand new disk, I make it as 5 partitions, such as:
c0t0d0s0 root 3.2G (root installation)
c0t0d0s1 swap 512M (Swap disk)
c0t0d0s2 backup 8.45 (whole disk)
c0t0d0s3 var 1.6G (spare space)
c0t0d0s4 usr 1.76G (user application system)
c0t0d0s6 home 1.68G (export share disk - user file system)
Then I newfs -m 1 c0t0d0sX to make all file system ok
Then I pull 4.3G disk out and replace 9.1G disk, and boot system from CDROM.
The problem occur, when I boot from CDROM, and select language, system can realize the disk but can't realize the partition. It always go to format my disk again and assign all disk space to two partitions such / and /export/home.
So dear Sir/Madam. I really don't like system repartition my disk and I want keep my partition table to install Solaris 8.
Who can help me on this? Thank you guys very much.
